My Songs /♥/ Summer Playlist


(Titles are linked to songs.)

Forever young
I wanna be
Forever young.
Do you really wanna live forever,
Or never?

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

(I've been watching old videos of 1D's first songs
together and now I'm feeling sentimental.)

I miss the taste of the sweeter life
I miss the conversation
I like to think that we had it all
Hard to resist temptation

'Cause you get lighter the more it gets dark
I'm going to give you my heart
And I don't care, go on and tear me apart

(My happy song.)

Yeah, we'll be doing what we do
Just pretending that we're cool, and we know it too

You cast a spell on me, spell on me
You hit me like the sky fell on me, fell on me
And I decided you looked well on me, well on me

(This and the above video are cool.)

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

Some things 'll never change
But 'til I try I'll never know

I see friends shaking hands, 
Saying, "how do you do?"
They're really saying, 
"I, I love you"

You can count on me like 1, 2, 3
I'll be there
And I know when I need it
I can count on you like 4, 3, 2
And you'll be there
'Cause that's what friends are s'posed to do

And when you smile 
The whole world stops to stare for a while
'Cause you're amazing
Just the way you are

Oh I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain
Yes, I would die for you, baby
But you won't do the same

But I just want you to know
I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Gives you all his hours

(You may have noticed, but I've just been
realizing how much I love Bruno Mars' music.)

I was born a champion
I was born to jump and run

Do we share any favorites? What's on your summer playlist?


  1. Maps! A Sky Full of Stars! Good Life! (I've only heard the original by OneRepublic) Grenade! Loving a lot of songs from this playlist ♥

    O | Life as a Young Lady

    1. I need to listen to the original. :)

  2. The lyrics look so poetic written down. They're all awesome songs, my favourites would have to be Viva la Vida and Maps. :)

    1. Don't they?! Love those two. :)


  4. I am obsessed with the "Maps" cover by MAX and Alyson Stoner. You must listen to it. I never liked the original until I heard their cover.

  5. One Direction covered "Viva La Vida"? I didn't know that. Love the original by Coldplay!

    1. It was one the songs they sang on XFactor.

  6. Yay for summer playlists! I didn't know that One Direction did Viva La Vida. I love the Coldplay version, but I'll have to check out 1D's version, too. Hmm, I've been loving Anna Sun by Walk The Moon, Run Boy Run by Woodkid, Urban Photograph by Urban Cone, to name a few... I'll have to check this playlist out! Sounds amazing.


  7. would anyone mind checking out my blog? i've worked really hard on it and would appreciate some feedback and a follow? I followed yours! thank you!

  8. This is a cool playlist! I remember those good, old days when One Direction sang Viva La Vida and Forever Young on the X Factor... very nostalgic. :)
    Right now I have been listening all of the songs on the new Of Monsters and Men album. It's sooo beautiful!

    1. haha Yeah the good ol' days. :)

  9. I liked your summer playlist, especially liked the videos of "Live While We're Young" and "Glad You Came." What is Glee like? I have never seen Glee, so I was wondering what it was about.

    1. I love those videos. :) I haven't seen more than half an episode of Glee and am not interested in watching any more, though I do listen to the music. It's a musical. This is the synopsis from IMDb: "A group of ambitious misfits try to escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a glee club, where they find strength, acceptance and, ultimately, their voice, while working to pursue dreams of their own." From what I understand/saw it's very gay.

    2. Thanks for telling me about the show. I would not like it. I think I'll stick to listening to their music. :-)

    3. Sure. :) The music is cool.
